Course Summary

This Course Set – RIIWHS202E & MSMWHS216 – Enter and Work in Confined Spaces & Operate Breathing Apparatus is designed for new and experienced personnel required to work in confined spaces and wear breathing apparatus in the resources and infrastructure industries at an operational level.

Many roles require confined space and breathing apparatus training, including safety, injury prevention and maintenance personnel, engineers, risk managers, mine managers, cable installers and transport personnel.

The breathing apparatus training covers working in a confined space, with hazardous gases/vapours, or in an oxygen deficient atmosphere and who may work alone or as part of a team as an operator required to wear breathing apparatus in their work role.

Participants will learn to distinguish what constitutes a confined space; key terminology; as well as understand the regulations and legislative requirements governing entering and working in and around confined spaces.

Participants will identify hazards and emergencies as well as implement appropriate control measures; conduct risk assessments and apply for a confined space entry permit.

This course set also covers the skills and knowledge required to conduct pre-donning checks and tests on breathing apparatus, operate and maintain breathing apparatus and equipment in an irrespirable atmosphere, and conclude operations as defined by the Australian Standard AS/NZS 1715:2009 Selection, use and maintenance of respiratory protective equipment.

Students will demonstrate how to enter, exit and work safely in a confined space according to an issued permit for two scenarios.

Participants will also inspect and select appropriate personal protective gear; operate various confined space safety equipment including atmospheric testing/monitoring devices; and conduct routine servicing of all equipment and gear.

Concluding operations will include correctly closing down, removing, and cleaning the breathing apparatus and reporting faults and/or damage to breathing apparatus.
